From skyscrapers to parking structures, from the Stock Exchange to the historic townhouses of Harlem, the buildings of New York are as diverse as its culture—and they are artfully photographed here by Jorg Brockmann. Essential information, history, and background stories about each one, along with neighborhood maps and useful sidebars, make this the last word on New York buildings large and small.

Bill Harris is a veteran New York historian and writer who has also logged many miles as a tour guide. Jorg Brockmann is an accomplished photographer whose talent matches the scale of the project. Together, they have created a feast for lovers of architecture and of great photography, as well as devotees of New York City.

Now in a well-priced and easy-to-carry paperback edition, One Thousand New York Buildings is the ultimate guide to the Great American City.
